Invensys Controls Launches SAAS ERP Solution Plex Online Throughout Global Facilities

Largest Customer Win in Plex Systems' History

AUBURN HILLS, MI--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) -   Plex Systems, Inc., provider of Plex Online, the No. 1 rated manufacturing ERP software, today announced that Invensys Controls has launched Plex Online as its manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.

Invensys Controls is one of three businesses of London, England-based Invensys plc. Invensys Controls, with headquarters in Carol Stream, Illinois, is a leading global provider of components, systems, and services used in appliance, heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, and residential thermostat products. It has locations in 15 countries which include 22 manufacturing sites, two distribution centers, and seven engineering centers.

"Our focus is to deliver the greatest value to our customers through engineering innovation and unrivaled customer service," explained Hubert Gassner, Invensys Controls CFO. "By implementing cutting edge technology tools from Plex Systems, we are establishing a foundation to build and enhance all our processes from the shop floor to the top floor."

Replacing all 11 systems with Plex Online will help Controls save time and reduce costs, use finance resources more effectively, and serve customers with greater efficiency.
